    I like the small icons, makes the place feel more open and vast.

    Thank you, Ascension. Yes, this was my idea, too, to use this as an optical trick to make the map 'larger'.

    Aye, the Augusta looks just a bit better than the Vinque methinks. The Carolingia is too wide (assuming that's what the 2nd one down is).

    What's the map scale?

    While I do like the vast feeling the map gives I can't help but think there are too many dunes in the desert area, I'm assuming that is what those are, it just feels a little too crowded. Just my opinion.

    People come and people go. I walk amongst them, I see their faces; but none see mine. I pass them in the streets but nary a glance is spared my way, for what interest would they have in a Wanderer? Not of this world... Forever Alone... Forever Wandering... LoneWandererD...

    I think about the dunes, D.

    City/Town labels and first idea for deco added.

    I'm also thinking about adding more info. Maybe symbols for important goods or short descriptions for some places.

    Don't really need to change them it was just my opinion, love the decoratives so far though

    Some refinement on the land and the plant in the upper left corner, and a first try for waves at the coast (east and west).

    A scroll added, which will contain the legend, also some nav lines (as I call them).

    As for additional info I think I will go for small symbols on the map with a short description.
